Fantagraphics Collects ‘Jim,’ A Jumble Of The Mind-Bending And Mundane By Jim Woodring [Preview]

JimCover

Even if you don't know Jim Woodring's name, there's a decent chance you've seen his work somewhere in the past 30 years or so of comics. His character Frank was one of the pivotal indie comics characters of the mid-to-late '90s, and Woodring has written Star Wars and Aliens comics for Dark Horse.

Woodring's most personal work, however, has been in the series simply titled Jim, which ran in the late '80s and mid '90s, and which took a surreal look at the day-to-day life of Woodring (or at least a fictionalized version of him). Fantagraphics will be releasing the first-ever collection of Jim's 10 issues next month, and has released a 21-page preview, which you can check out below.

Do they work in a cheerful, brightly lit space filled with plants and knick-knacks? Or have they carved out chaotic office spaces amid collapsing towers of paper? The Tumblr blog Where They Draw offers glimpses insi
